“I’LL LAUNDROMAP THAT”: NZ DRY CLEANING TECH STARTUP ENTERS AUSTRALIA SEEKING $3-4M TO GROW

On-demand dry cleaning pick-up and delivery service Laundromap has now launched in Perth and Sydney, with the founders of the New Zealand tech startup in the midst of planned $3-4 million capital raise to service further capitals across Australia.

Since launching in New Zealand last year, Laundromap has grown at a rate of 30% month-on-month. Meanwhile, the startup’s app, which facilitates home or office laundry/dry cleaning pickup and delivery for users while providing them with real-time updates via a GPS tracking system, has been downloaded 15,000 times across iOS and android devices.

CEO Hayden Foster, who co-founded Laundromap with Adam Plowman, spoke to Dynamic Business about the startup, including its plans for Australia.

DB: What is the elevator pitch for Laundromap?

Foster: Essentially, we’re bringing your dirty clothes into the 21st century with a service offering that is truly customer centric. The 2016 Census data found that Australians spend between five and 14 hours a week on domestic housework and the Laundromap app can reduce time spent on Laundry to just a few minutes. In a few clicks and taps of an iPhone or tablet – the entire job is done, from your home. Just as you no longer need to queue for your morning coffee or a cab, thanks to us, you’ll never need to queue for your dry-cleaning again. Read more
